Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to answer your question.

I am sorry to hear about your difficult situation.

Did your question your daughter in law as to how she was able to view your ct scan results?

Do you know for a fact that she viewed your ct. scan or she might be possibly making it up or not telling you the truth?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I did not ask her I was shocked she said she saw.my results of my scan


results.She new what they found and I had not told her or my son yet. My husband and I just moved here 7 months ago and this is first time ive had any tests done at this hospital. Daugher inlaw is a MA for a surgeon in town and assists him in surgeries at same hospital.

Expert:  Alex J. Esq. replied 1 year ago.
Dear XXXXXa,

Thank you for your follow up.

Even if your daughter in law has access to the hospital medical records data base, she is not permitted to access your personal medical records without your written permission and such unauthorized access to your medical records by your daughter would constitute a HIPAA violation.

You can file a HIPAA violation complaint at the link below and the hospital, as well as, your daughter in law will be investigated and possibly fined if it is determined that a violation has occurred:
